We buy a large range of goods, works and services to enable the delivery of an effective service for the people of Lancashire and as this is public money we must comply with UK law and EU procurement directives in addition to our own internal standing orders.
The EU directives prescribe that all procurements above (or within 10% of) the threshold limits set by the European Union must be advertised in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU).
Procurement rules and laws are in place to ensure there is no discrimination to bidders and there is equal treatment of all potential bidders/suppliers through fair competition.
Procurement in Lancashire County Council is devolved to directorates so is conducted by many individuals in different locations across the county.
You can still access our old eTendering portal, if you need information about a contract managed through it.
